After a long ride using the same model shoes as normal but with Decathlon SPD cleats I suffered calf problems. On investigation I found the float (free rotation of the shoe in the pedal) was much less compared to the Shimano version. For some this may be an advantage. For me it appears to have created a problem.
Reasonably priced alternative to the genuine item
'Float' appears to be much less
The cleats as you say do have less degree of float than the Shimano ones, depending which model you have, the Shimano ones we sell have 6 degree of float (this info was difficult to find) where as the B'Twin ones only provide 4 degrees of float as mentioned on the website. As you have said this could cause the issue you have come across along with the cleats being in a slightly different position on your shoes.
